Now that spring is here, our eyes are on summer. With just a taste of warm weather, we’re already dreaming of the shining sun, glistening pools, abundant produce—and stunning, colorful flowers. And while a bouquet in a vase is a classic way to showcase such vibrant florals, we like to get a little more creative here.

The wreath, which may be filed away in your mind as a holiday season-only decoration, is a beautiful, dynamic way to celebrate nature’s bounty any time of year. With sunflowers, hydrangeas, and lavender blooming during the hotter months, we encourage you to either buy a summer wreath or craft one yourself to spread summery joy around your home.

To Make

1. Sunflowers & Rustic Ribbon

Adorned with a burlap bow and twine, this sunflower wreath feels like August on a lush farm.

2. Everything Is Peachy

Juicy stone fruit is one of the most delicious aspects of summer, and thus should be honored in wreath form.

3. Hydrangea, Lavender & Eucalyptus

Like an English garden in July, sweet pink hydrangeas meet fragrant lavender and eucalyptus.

4. Like Riding a Bike

It simply doesn’t get more summer than using bicycle spokes as the base for a floral wreath.

5. Hot Pink Peonies

From deep fuchsia to pale blush, a harmonious medley of pink hues defines this peony piece.

6. Wild, Wild

Imagine strolling barefoot through a meadow of wildflowers. That’s the sensation this natural wreath evokes.

7. When Life Gives You Lemons…

While you could certainly make a cold pitcher of lemonade with a bunch of ripe yellow lemons, this leafy wreath seems like a better use of them.

8. Poppy Hoop

For a more modern look, grab a golden hoop and attach a bevy of peach-colored poppies.
